Nothing against the Rays, but the it'd be nice if nobody had to watch postseason baseball on Tropicana Field.

The only teams intentionally tanking right now are Seattle, Baltimore, ChiSox (nearing end of cycle), and ???

I think those wins mean the glass is approximately 71% empty actually

Blue Jays
Orioles
Royals
Tigers
White Sox
Mariners
Marlins

Some of those are more egregious than others, and the NL has more "normal" bad teams. But, it's pretty bad.

i don't know that it counts as tanking if your team never truly bottomed out (blue jays, royals (arguably)) or don't seemingly have any plan for the future (tigers, marlins)

i'm not saying the MLB is in a great place in terms of competitive balance, but tanking feels like a more specific thing to me

like detroit is just suffering from their relatively long "all in" period that ended 3-4 years ago, same with the royals, the jays are very recently a bad team and built their farm system while playing very good baseball, and the marlins are just the marlins

Yeah I wanted the Brewers for the NLDS but WSH with these two guys probably off for Game 1 and 2 is probably just as good
